abstract

  • Malignant lymphomas with multilobulated nuclei are recently recognized neoplasms. We report a case of multilobulated B-cell lymphoma arising in the breast. The light microscopic, electron microscopic, and immunohistochemical features are described and compared with those of previously reported T- and B-cell multilobulated lymphomas from other sites. A follicular center cell origin of this lymphoma is postulated. To our knowledge, this is the first report of a primary multilobulated lymphoma of the breast.
